St Leonards care worker cleared of assaults on pensioners

A CARE worker accused of mistreating two elderly patients has had his case dropped.

Michael Deboick, 43, of Welton Rise, St Leonards, was charged in on February 10, with assaulting a 73-year-old and an 85-year-old man at Mount Denys Residential Care Home, in The Ridge, in May 2011.

The case was discontinued when he appeared before Hastings magistrates, due to lack of evidence.
